exactly the obama administration thinks these strikes are legal. they say, let me say as simply as i can, in full accordance with the law, the united states government conducted targeted strikes. in full accordance with the law. we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savidge wrote this story. this is about a week after awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird. because after the times reported on the existence of the memo, the

it out of, is this about -- this isn't about the obama administration. we have to remember that this is a function of our government, this is a function of the three branches of government to make sure that there are these checks and balances. i mean, you know, some people were talking about this earlier this week. it's, this is a memo for president obama or is this a memo for dick cheney? that's not the way we should be thinking about this. we need to be thinking about this in terms of our constitution and what we need to do to ensure that there are checks and balances, that there is a process in place and that's what senator wyden has been talking about and pressing for. so i think the administration should be prepared for many more questions on this until there is some degree of satisfaction. we may not in the public get full satisfaction but certainly in a confidential classified manner, those senators who have oversight responsibility have to feel more comfortable with the information that they are getting. >> let's talk about satisfaction. it seems that senators or re
fought the president on the debt ceiling. he called the obama administration the imperial presidency. he stepped out today to show there are no rough edges in this republican party. let's listen to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better,
an american for assassination, it's the obama administration advancing novel legal theories. >> we have have as a basis for action a congressional statute that allows us to to operate and balking at congressional oversite. >> i have nothing on alleged memos regarding potentially classified memphis. >> this president when he was a senator excoriated the bush administration for its presumption of an imperial presidency and presidential powers. now that he's the president, he's lucky he doesn't have a senator obama who is chas chastg him from the floor of the united states senate. >> reporter: some of the obama supporters dabbing at the sand man in their eyes appear to have awakend to the double standard. >> i have to say i was definitely on the critical end of things as were members of my family. we were very, very, very concerned about how far the bush administration pushed the boundaries of not only what is constitutional but what is morally right, and this is definitely in the same category. >> obviously a democratic administration white house secret war policy memos are very different from
, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the obama administration's policy of targeting americans comes under attack on capitol hill. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them. >> the president's pick for cia takes a grilling over the targeted killings of american citizens. >> people are reacting to a lot of falsehoods that are out there. >> tonight, the man who broke this story, michael isikoff of nbc news on the revelations for the brennan confirmation hearing. first it was virginia. now michigan is flirting with state-mandated vaginal probes. there's a late update on this story. i'll talk war on women with terry o'neil and actress martha plimpton. >>> senator bernie sanders has a new plan to stop corporate tax dodgers. >> corporations are people, my friend. >> the senator unveils his new bill here tonight. >>> plus, someone actually made the paul harvey farmer ad better. >>> and governor chris christie wants everyone to shut up about his weight. >> shut up. >> tonight, rev
released by the obama administration, governing school lunches and vending machines. now they are saying that we have to have diet soda and low-cal foods, all in an effort to combat obesity. i think parents know how to govern obesity in the homes. how about more physical education, i have one who needs to run around several times a day. how about parent who is think that diet soda is not the way to go? i prefer my kids to drink the soda and brush their teeth, instead of drrching diet sodasm i think this poll is like americans, parents are feeling an assault on personal freedom and how they raise their family, how they live their lives. >> another number i thought was interesting, only 26% of people in this poll say they trusted the federal government to do the right thing. only a quarter of americans. >> that's because, when you go to 2011 and see that seven months was dedicated to arguing about the debt ceiling. the debt ceiling, which does not one thing to add to the budget deficit. not one nickel of spenning, it's agreeing to pay the bill. we waited seven months and threaten ord credi
in a national park. >> and are you lobbying the obama administration for this? >> of course. >> and what is the holdup? what's taking them -- what is their hesitation? >> well as you can see, you've got a lot of people that resist any kind of change, and i give you the example, it took us two years just to stop the importation because of resistance. >> let me ask you one quick question about some senate business, are you fully confident that chuck hagel can do the job of secretary of defense? do you have any hesitation based on that confirmation hearing? >> i have the confidence in chuck. i was surprised that he was not more direct in his answers. he could have been more straightforward. i think he would have come off better but chuck is an enormously competent patriot, and he will do well as secretary. >> senator bill nelson, democrat from the state of florida, i appreciate the update on this python issue and we'll be waiting to hear what the obama administration does in response to the idea of expanding it to the national park itself. thank you, sir. >> thanks, chuck. >>> turning to th
by the obama administration in the past. >> you say with certainty that bin laden's hideout would have been found without the advanced interrogation techniques? >> i can say with certainty that no single piece of information with the exception with the address of the compound was vital to this because we're talking about tiny bits of information that were compiled by unbelievably competent professionals. >> the information that was acquired that led to our knowledge about this compound came from multiple sources. sometimes individuals provide information willingly and sometimes they did unwittingly. the tracking of bin laden's whereabouts put the puzzle together so there was no one critical bit of information that was provided by either a detainee or somebody else. >> sean: joining me is liz cheney. maybe you can explain, why is this president can never accept plame blame for bad decisions and can't even knowledge what is an obvious simple truth that those eit's give them intelligence that led to the capture and compiling of bin laden? >> i don't know why. i think part of it has to do he do

announcer ] hold packages at any fedex office location. >>> the obama administration's decision to give congress previously classified counter terrorism documents followed days of pressure from lawmakers demanding more transparency. john brennan himself called for clarity in a speech in 2009. >> i have been deeply troubled by the inflammatory rhetoric and hyperbole that is often characterizing the debate over the security policies. particularly those relating to the fight against terrorists. as we move ahead, the president feels strongly we maintain a robust dialogue with the american people, indeed with the world about the full range of efforts to prevent terrorist attacks. >> the new mexico senator tom udahl is one of seven senators that signed a letter that led to the classified legal opinions release. he joins me now. senator, good morning to you. >> good morning. good to be with you this morning. >> apologies. we are late. the president was late in his speech at the prayer breakfast. let me start with the administration's decision. is this a no? >> i think this is encouraging to re
from one administration to the next. even though i trust president obama. if we set a president now, are we going to live with that if the next president is someone we don't agree with? no matter the politics, that's the question we should think about. policy should be around the precedent we set. no president should be able to go unchecked. i was opposed to it under bush. i'm opposed to it now. i'm afraid for the future. we must watch this carefully. i'm a.m. sharpton, thanks for watching. "hardball" starts right now. >> defending the drones, let's play "hardball" ♪ >>> good evening. i'm michael smerconish in for chris matthews. secrets and spies. the man who is at the center of the national debate over the targeted killing of americans overseas has been in the hot seat on capitol hill. among other things, john brennan coordinates the kill list, and so his confirmation hearing to become head of the cia is drawing an unusual amount of interest and attention. we'll get to what he said and the reaction at the top of the show. >>> also, more and more people on the right are asking, w
, particularly on fox, i think this is very significant. you know, four years ago, as the obama administration was just getting started in its first term, lapierre was on with glen beck riling people up, talking to beck's paranoid audience about this gun grab that was coming. and all of this -- beyond alarmist, insane rhetoric and devicive rhetoric. >> how much is -- do you think people were just psychological? is this a male thing worried about somebody coming to get their appliance? i mean, what is this about? it seems deeper than just how many guns do you own? do they actually believe that the federal government is going to come door-to-door to law-abiding, regular class, people, looking for guns? do they actually believe that's going to happen? >> some of them do, i think. and i think they particularly believe it when there's a democrat in the white house. wayne lapierre is the person who talked about federal agents after oklahoma city. so this is a man who's been allowed to have a platform on the national stage, even though he is a wing nut. and, finally, you have someone reich chris wall
for the first two years of the obama administration was to have someone there with the credibility to say, you know, this old cold war system can die. we don't need it. we can cut the budget here and put the money in cyber or put the money in some other activity that the united states considers relevant pursuing terrorists. right now it's not clear that he has enough juice with his own party that any of those arguments would necessarily work. i think that the white house has to be wondering did they buy the kind of authority from him and the kind of bipart sfwlan approach that they had hoped for? >> david, thank you very much. chuck, before i let you go, we've about the to talk about the game. >> i'm in purple. >> you're in your purple. >> you're all ready. >> congrats to them. >> first of all, the highlights. two different games, i think. the fist half, the -- the first half -- >> preoutage sfwloosh had you the flacco first touchdown which was incredible. then you had jacoby jones, who i think he saw you were tweeting last night that jacoby jones, you thought, should have been the mvp. that 1
>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright
. david frum joins me along with rosa brooks. former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the obama administration. i'm sorry, this just made me chuckle. david, i started thinking back to bobby jindal in 2009. panned by democrats and republicans alike. people were so nasty. they were picking on the way he walked out to the podium. it was pretty harsh. "the new york times" headline the next day was governor jindal rising star plummets after speech. is this too dangerous for a rising star to take on? >> well, these are big opportunities and there's always a chance of recovery. let's not forget one of the most universally condemned speech of recent times was bill clinton's keynote speech at the 1988 democratic convention when he got a big round of applause when he said in conclusion. he did okay. they nominated him next time and he went on to a pretty successful political career. let's not forget that last time the person who gave the response was paul ryan, who went on to gain the republican vice presidential nomination. it's a big moment. if you do well, there are opportunities. if y
from radio listeners who sense a hypocrisy in what they see the obama administration being critical of harsh interrogation methods but going along with the drone program. is there some inherent hypocrisy in that? >> well, there was an interesting statistic in the first year of the obama administration. i think -- or perhaps over the first couple of years in the administration. he authorized more drone strikes and more people were killed in drone strikes that he authorized than the total number of people that had before passed through guantanamo bay. that crystallizes that hypocrisy people talk about. >> you could also argue that we know drone strikes work. you know, the jury still seems like it's out with regard to hash shall interrogation metz thod but drone strikes work. >> in terms of the morality, you know, if you determine that there are threats out there, there are bad guys that you need to take off the battlefield but you can't go there, you can't go to pakistan, you can't go to certain places, then what alternative do you have if you can't capture them. nornd, once you have
acting secretaries of commerce during the obama administration only 2 confirmed secretaries of commerce. so it's it not a major priority. >> all right. but i don't think the secretary of commerce does anything certainly hasn't done much lately because there isn't one. >> bill: they don't do anything. oversight? >> it is, as you would infer, it's a little patronage. we are hearing very clearly that the president can't find anybody to take the job. i don't buy that penny is going to take this job. this is an accomplished business woman. she is an important community figure in chicago. and she has got bigger fish to fry. >> bill: she is really far left person. >> no question about it. >> bill: she is not going to look out for me or you or anybody else. she is going to push a very left wing agenda on to the commerce department. >> which is probably going to be pretty concern that the of the president himself. >> that brings back to initial comment she doesn't care anymore. going to appoint these people. >> if he can find one. >> channeling his inner martin van buren. you know the master. ki

on the progressive left, some of them, and libertarian right are taking issue with the obama administration drone policy. this is a family dispute in my house. polls show most americans support, even most liberals if you will, even when it means killing americans who are plotting with al qaeda to kill other americans. >>> plus, four senators, two democrats and two republicans, are really working on a deal to expand at least background checks for gun sales. two of the four senators are members of the nra. if they can strike a deal, then a big part of president obama's gun safety proposals could be within reach. >>> plus, the terrific movie "silver linings playbook" puts mental illness in the spotlight tonight. we're joined by the director of that film, the great david russell, to talk about the issue and the oscar history the movie could make. i think it's got a shot. >>> texas governor rick perry escalates that war with his california counterpart -- he's not even slightly a counterpart. jerry brown is so much better. that's coming in the "sideshow" tonight. and this is "hardball" the place for po

ahead of john brennan's confirmation hearing to head the cia, the obama administration's drone program is drawing new scrutiny from both sides of the aisle and raising big questions about just how far the government should go in targeted assassinations without oversight from congress or from the courts. joining me now for our daily fix, msnbc contributor and "usa today" washington bureau chief. chris, first to you, i don't think there is any big question so far as to whether or not john brennan is going to be confirmed at least going into the hearing, but this is a real debate now. because of michael isikoff breaking the story and finding that white paper, and discovering that the justice department had at least september that much to the hill, some members, the 11 senators and at least three the committee asking big questions about why there isn't more oversight. >> what's fascinating is when they announced the trio of nominations, john kerry at state, chuck hagel at defense and john brennan for cia, i remember being on the show and saying i think hagel will be the most controversial
it on to a consumer, but the proposal does not make it go away. it leaves the obama administration open to the criticism. if you own a business and don't want to provide coverage to women because of the law saying they are titled to it, they cannot be eligible. >> we're haven't heard from the groups. they are registering disappointment. could this once again go to the nation's highest court. >> this is almost certainly going to go to the nation's highest court. the real story is there three different rule changes. all of them on friday to minimize attention to it. the administration knows this is a battle to end up in the stream court. all the technicalities don't change the fundaments. they are shoring up the legal standing to get enough votes at the supreme court to be able to uphold the entire contra accepting mandate and an official that this is more about a legal maneuver than a desire to assuage real concerns on the part of religious leaders. >> this is what they write. the white house decision ought to be taken by the nation's bishops as a victory because it is. they include the
in a hard economy and generation now are being punished by the obama administration and the justice department and homeland security by not doing i-9s and policing the immigration of their staff. the economics here are very harsh. what we should be doing is to remove the biblical straw and giving employers the staff and the resources that they need. giving people a path legally in a earned legal since and financial fee they can afford, and yes paying taxes and ferr ferreting out all of the criminals. i'm a former federal pros prosecutors, we do not want to create a place for people to boot strap themselves in on criminal grounds, but again, this will prevent deporting people to areas that should not be, and we cannot detain people here who are scholars, because the detention facilities are abominab abominable. >> clint, i heard you say a couple of things that are surprising, well, a lot of things that are surprising, and the number one thing is that we need more workers, and we are hearing of a xhiblg crisis and surplus of workers and that is part of the reason why immigration is do
